Marcesina Plateau and Grigno

Town: Grigno
Grigno is the first hamlet in Valsugana for those coming from Bassano in the direction of Trento. It is an ideal place for summer breaks, but also a thriving industrial centre. Its surroundings are particularly interesting for speleology thanks to the abundance of natural caves, some of which are of considerable size. Anywhere near it is possible to take stroll in a peaceful natural environment.

Marcesina Plateau is a wide expanse of pastures surrounded by coniferous forests, with a lot of areas destined for alpine pastures in summer (“malghe”), on the border of Veneto region. This area, also known as “the Finland of Italy”, extends on a moraine originated after the last wurm glaciation. The Plateau is the perfect destination for those who love trekking, mountain bike and horse riding: from Barricata Alpine Hut start several paths closed to traffic that lead to Gallio, Asiago, Folgaria Plateau, Vezzena and Monte Ortigara through beautiful and unspoiled sceneries.


In winter the tracks on the Plateau become a system of 200 km for Nordic skiing and snowshoes; in this season it is possible to get to Barricata Alpine Hut only on foot. The easiest tracks on Marcesina Plateau are perfect for cross-country skiing beginners, while the routes that reach 2000 m of Malga Fossetta, Moline and Ortigara are more suitable for experienced skiers.
